It identifies key industry drivers and barriers to build, implement, and deploy mobile solutions and presents assumptions of the changes brought by mobility that will shape business and IT strategy in the coming years.

"More than ever, mobile technologies are empowering workers across industries to connect, collaborate, and create new ways to operate and do business," said Jessica Goepfert, program director of IDC's Global Technology and Industry Research Organization. "It goes beyond providing a smartphone to liberate the deskbound worker. Rather, it is utilizing mobile technology to increase sales, improve productivity, and raise customer and employee satisfaction."
